hurricane so to speak because if it hadn't passed we would have lost $375 million. >> reporter: officials say they will not be raising tuition this year. but it could happen again next year and there will be fee increases. still they hope prop 30 will make a difference in stabilizing a system that has been off balance ever since prop 13 started taking away its ability to raise revenues through property taxes. recently they have had to resort to layoffs and so-called efficiency cuts while relying on state money frozen in time. >> the state is providing the same level of funneling it's did in 1997 when there were 75,000 fewer students amend one less campus. >> the football coach is make over $2 million a year. >> reporter: this philosophy major says the school still needs to make better decisions. >> our chancellor makes more than governor. the president of the board of regents makes more than the president of the united states. so the money is there.

6:02 pm
county. >> reporter: the names and cases contained in these red books could be among the first three strikers in california to be released under the newly passed proposition 36. >> this county was pro active because as the district attorney, i supported proposition 36. >> reporter: district attorney jeff rosen got ahead of the curve and began compiling the list even before the votes were cast. >> i thought that reforming the "three strikes" law in this way would make the punishment fit the crime. >> reporter: santa clara county has 550 three strikes cases where inmates are serving sentences of 25 years to life in prison. of those, the d.a. determined 118 cases are eligible for early release under prop 36. they are cases that involve nonviolent offenders who have been already served as many as 10 years in prison. >> a typical fact pattern being prior burglary offenses and the new offense being drug possession or petty theft or writhing a bad check. >> reporter: this man supports prop 36 because it refocuses
6:03 pm
three strikes on the violent offenders. >> it's more fair because sometimes it takes people a while to learn from their mistakes and the last mistake could be the last mistake that puts themlife. so if it's minor it guests them a fighting chance. >> reporter: he says prop 36 won't be like a green light to get out of prison. even the cases he says are eligible could still be held up by the inmates' own behavior. >> one of the factors that a court will consider in deciding whether to resentence someone will be how they behaved while they were in prison so that requires us to get the records from the prison and that will take some amount of time. >> reporter: now, you can bet the news about prop 36 is spreading quickly throughout the prison system. and folks coming back to santa clara county might be the first off because the filtering process that all the counties are going to have to go through, dana, has already been done here. so they will be the first out. what has to take place is hearings and they will be scheduled probably here within the next three to six months.

6:31 pm
>> the reason this is going to be a problem for the economy is it's large and will hit suddenly unless we're smart enough to fix this. >> reporter: let's hope we are. it's not just your money and job. think about the big picture. if we're making less we're spending less which means the economy slows even more. and this means going over the "fiscal cliff" could mean another painful recession and that's why it's scary. >> let's hope the word compromise starts to be used a lot. thank you. stocks fell for a second straight day because of the potential for gridlock in washington. the dow lost 121 points today. yesterday, it plunged 313. the nasdaq and s&p dropped by double digits today. samsung's galaxy s3 overtook apple's iphone 4s as the word's best selling smartphone for the first time. boston-based strategy analytics says that the s3 shipped 18
